If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In case you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different platforms. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
